Wednesday, February 17, 2016 by Pet Travel Questions

Hello PetRelocation,

We're moving to Singapore from Australia and want to take our cockatiel with us. However, I'm having difficulty understanding if we'll be able to bring her back after a period of approximately three years.

Can you please advise? The information on various Australia government websites seems to be contradictory.

Thank you for your question. As the requirements currently stand, only certain types of birds from New Zealand may enter Australia so it appears...

Pet Travel to Singapore & Dog Breed Restrictions

Wednesday, November 11, 2015 by Pet Travel Questions

Hi PetRelocation,

Are there any restrictions for moving and owning a dog in Singapore?





Hi Michelle,

Thank you for submitting a question to us. Singapore is somewhat strict when it comes to importing pets and keeping certain breeds of dogs. That doesn't mean it'll be impossible to move your German Shepherd there, but you'll need to be aware of a few things.

First, please look over the pet import rules for Singapore. Note there is a 10-day minimum quarantine upon arrival and the...

Moving Pets to Singapore From Italy

Monday, November 2, 2015 by Pet Travel Questions

Hi PetRelocation,

Is a quarantine mandatory for a cat moving from Italy to Singapore?




Hi Fifre,

Thank you for your question! Singapore is rabies free and is stricter than many other countries when it comes to importing pets, so yes, pets entering Singapore from Italy will need to undergo quarantine upon arrival. Depending on your cat's status in terms of vaccinations fulfilled and requirements met, this quarantine period will be between 10 and 30 days.

For more details about this...

Incredible Experiences: Four Dogs, One Big Journey to California

Thursday, October 8, 2015 by PetRelocation.com Customer

Liza, Logan, Flora, Raine"Moving our FOUR Dogs Cross Country!"

We recently moved from Westchester, NY to the East Bay area of San Francisco for my husband's job.

I was originally thinking about driving the dogs across the country myself because I was worried about the dogs riding in the belly of an airplane. My husband explained that the dogs would be just as stressed or maybe more riding in our mini-van across the country, and instead of being stressed for 6 hours on the plane they would be stressed for at least 5 days...

Incredible Experiences: Yoda & Mojo's Move to Singapore

"From A to Z"

Relocating alone from Montreal to Singapore was already quite overwhelming, and relocating two indoor cats 14000+ km away added another challenge!


Thanks to PetRelocation, though; they took care of us, a worried and overprotective mom and two nervous kittens, from A to Z.

They got all the paperwork and the vet appointments in order and booked all the travel, the logistics and lodging arrangements. I really don't know what I would have done without PetRelocation's help.
